How to Get Player Icons in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Mode (FUT)
What are Player Icons?
Player Icons are extremely rare player cards of star footballers throughout the history of the game which include Pele, Ronaldinho, and Maradona to name a few. Player Icons generally boast the highest overall ratings (OVR) of any player you can recruit to your squad in FUT, making them incredible powerhouses on the pitch.
How to Get Player Icons
You can get Player Icons in FUT by opening player packs, clearing Icon Swap SBCs, and purchasing them from the Transfer Market.
You can chance upon Player Icons by opening player packs bought from the store. Note that the probability of getting a Player Icon in a pack is lower than 1% so you will need to be very lucky to pull one even after spending a good number of hours in the game.
Icon Swap Squad Building Challenges (SBCs)
Player Icons can also be obtained by meeting objectives in special Icon Swap Squad Building Challenges (SBCs). As you expect, many of these SBCs require a lot of time and effort to complete (to the point of devoting yourself to completely reworking your squads just to meet certain objectives).
The most straightforward way to get Player Icons is to purchase them from the Transfer Market which go for incredibly hefty prices. If you want to skip the agony of lucking out in packs or grinding Icon Swap SBCs to get Player Icons, you can opt to spend money at the Transfer Market instead.
